  • Confirmed the proposed amendment on ‘expected recovery of insurance acquisition cash flows as proposed in the ED
  • Agreed to finalise six other proposed amendments in the ED to which respondents to the ED either agreed or did not raise concerns the Board had not previously considered
  • Noted the IASB staff’s expectation for the Board to consider the proposed effective date of IFRS 17 and the proposed extension of the IFRS 9 temporary exemption towards the end of its re-deliberations.
